Babouche

No.223

A cheerful yellow

Babouche takes its exotic name from the distinctive colour of the leather slippers worn by men in Morocco. It has a cheerful brightness that will intensify when used in large areas, but it is always dignified and never garish. Babouche can be paired with Railings for a very modern but sumptuous effect. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones 

Complementary white: House White

Babouche is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.

Product Information 
ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.


QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our 132 paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.


SAFETY INFORMATION

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright It felt like an expensive purchase, but we couldn't find a decent shade of yellow floor paint anywhere else. We've used it to paint our stairs and it looks good. I would've liked it to be a bit more of a vibrant mustard colour- its a bright yellow but a bit creamier finish than I would like. My husband loves the colour. It's going to look great next to a navy carpet runner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Colour not as advertised Great coverage and texture but it's just not as vibrant as the site photography would have you think. Even after 3 coats it finishes far closer to lemon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shade Babouche gives a great splash of colour (but not garish, which worried me) to my otherwise monochrome scheme in both my kitchen/diner and front porch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was disappointed it was an oil based paint I thought the paint would be water based as with other eggshell paints I have purchased. The colour was lovely though with good coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bedroom makeover I chose babouche with some trepidation but decided to be brace an go for it. I wasn't looking for a bright sunshiney yellow - more verging on a mustard but with a wow factor. The depth of colour is beautiful- very classy (I think anyway) - it's cheerful during the day but also evokes a warm and inviting atmosphere to the bedroom in the evening. My bedroom is now my favourite room in the house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour Bold and vibrant, used it to paint a sun in my babies room. You can go wrong with farrow and ball paints.
